To mark Yom HaShoah and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Bergen-Belsen, The Anne Frank Center USA will host a special screening of Steal a Pencil for Me, the compelling documentary feature film about the power of love and the ability of humankind to rise above unimaginable suffering. Set in Holland in 1943, Steal a Pencil for Me tells the moving true story of Jack and Ina Polak, and the secret love letters they wrote which sustained them during the horrors of war.
The screening will be introduced by Jack and Ina’s daughter, Margrit Polak, and their granddaughter, Sofi, and will include the unveiling of new video footage of the couple in the AFC gallery.
